Interests

My main research interest is in databases. I am a member of the Oxford Database Group. Current research projects:

  • Factorised databases: FDB
  • Probabilistic databases: SPROUT (query evaluation techniques), MayBMS (representation models, query languages), ENFrame (probabilistic programming), Pigora (probabilistic data integration)
  • Datalog engines: With folks@LogicBlox on their Datalog engine, with Oxford colleagues on RDFox.

Past projects to which I contributed as student/co-investigator/principal investigator:

  • DIQOPT: Distributed Query Optimisation
  • G-Store: A Storage Manager for Graph Data
  • SKAR-DB: Managing Square-Kilometer-Array Data
  • SPEX: Streamed and Progressive Evaluation of XPath
  • Agora: Living with XML and Relational Data

Research support: Astor Travel Fund, Cornell, Google, EPSRC (DBOnto, PROQAW, ADEPT); EU FP7 (FOX, HiperDNO).
